Coldplay - Viva La Vida [2008]




2008 και οι Coldplay στο "Viva La Vida" .





Εδώ live από το Amsterdam.




Coldplay - Viva La Vida [2008]
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies' eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead, long live the king!"
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castle stands
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a'ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd gone it was never,
never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh...who would ever wanna be king

I hear Jerusalem bells were ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs were singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St. Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Oooh Ooooh Oooh Ooooh...

Patti Smith Group - Because the Night [1978]




1978 και "Because the Night" από την Patti Smith.



Patti Smith Group - Because the Night [1978]
Take me now baby here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I'm in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can't hurt you now,
Can't hurt you now, can't hurt you now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I'm alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can't touch you now,
Can't touch you now, can't touch you now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turns and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it's time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

James - Sometimes [1993]


1993 και "Sometimes" από τους James.

(Καλά να περάσετε όσοι τους δείτε από κοντά σήμερα).



James - Sometimes [1993]
There's a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder
Crack and thunder, is closing in, is closing in
The rain floods gutters, and makes a great sound on theconcrete
On a flat roof, there's a boy leaning against the wall of rain
Aerial held high, calling "come on thunder, come on thunder"

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see yoursoul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see yoursoul

It's a monsoon, and the rain lifts lids off cars
Spinning buses like toys, stripping them to chrome
Across the bay, the waves are turning into something else
Picking up fishing boats and spewing them on the shore

The boy is hit, lit up against the sky, like a sign, like a neonsign
And he crumples, drops into the gutter, legs twitching
The flood swells his clothes and delivers him on, delivers him on

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see yoursoul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see yoursoul

There's four new colors in the rainbow
An old man's taking polaroids
But all he captures is endless rain, endless rain
He says listen, takes my head and puts my ear to his
And I swear I can hear the sea

Somtimes, when I look in your eyes I can see your soul
(I can reach your soul)
(I can touch your soul)
Sometimes...

Monaco - What Do You Want From Me? [1997]



1997 και οι Monaco στο "What Do You Want From Me?"



Monaco - What Do You Want From Me? [1997]

There is one thing that I would die for
It's the music, my life is in your hands
Cause when you're near me, your love is all I need
Now I can't imagine

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

Give me something I can rely on
Far away from the life that I once knew
What does it matter, that's all I have to say
And I can't imagine

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

Ν. Πορτοκάλογλου & Αντρ. Μπάμπαλη - Γίνε κομμάτια (Νυχτερινό Ρέγγε) [2003]


Ο Νίκος Πορτοκάλογλου και η Αντριάνα Μπάμπαλη στο "Γίνε κομμάτια (Νυχτερινό Ρέγγε)" από το album "Δίψα" του 2003.



Γίνε κομμάτια (Νυχτερινό Ρέγγε) [2003]

Ξέχασα τ' όνομά μου, το δρόμο, τα κλειδιά...
Απόψε, καρδιά μου, ποιος φεύγει, ποιος γυρνά;

Ποιο σκοτεινό φεγγάρι, ποια δίψα, ποια φωτιά;
ποια τρέλα, ποια ζάλη, απόψε σ' οδηγά;

Κλείσε τα μάτια, κλείσ' τα και χόρεψέ μου,
γίνε κομμάτια, τη νύχτα χάρισέ μου,
άνοιξ' τα χέρια, σήκω και χόρεψέ μου,
μέχρι τ' αστέρια, τη νύχτα χάρισέ μου...

Κάποιος σε περιμένει, κάπου έξω μακριά...
Μα η νύχτα πως βγαίνει, σ' αυτή την ερημιά;

Τελειώσαν πια τα λόγια, τελειώσαν τα λεφτά,
Μα δωσ' μου τη φλόγα, κι ανάβω πυρκαγιά...

Κλείσε τα μάτια, κλείσ' τα και χόρεψέ μου,
γίνε κομμάτια, τη νύχτα χάρισέ μου,
άνοιξ' τα χέρια, σήκω και χόρεψέ μου,
μέχρι τ' αστέρια, τη νύχτα χάρισέ μου...

Moby - That's When I Reach For My Revolver [1992]



Ο Moby στο "That's When I Reach For My Revolver" (1997).



Moby - That's When I Reach For My Revolver [1997]

Once I had my heroes
Once I had my dreams
But all of that is changed now
The truth begins again
The truth is not that comfortable, no
Mother taught us patience
The virtues of restraint
Father taught us boundaries
The knowledge we must go
I'm trying to protect my unity

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

A friend of mine once told me
His one and only aim
To build a giant castle
And in it sign his name
Sign it with complete community

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

Now that the sky is empty
And that is nothing new
Instead they look upon us
When they tell me
That we're nothing
I say!

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

Joy Division - Love will tear us apart [1979]





1980 και οι Joy Division στο "Love will tear us apart"



1979 John Peel session BBC


Joy Division - Love will tear us apart [1979]

When routine bites hard,
And ambitions are low,
And resentment rides high,
But emotions won't grow,
And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You've turned away on your side.
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect runs so dry.
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

You cry out in your sleep,
All my failings exposed.
And there's a taste in my mouth,
As desperation takes hold.
Just that something so good
Just can't function no more.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer [1986]



Ο Peter Gabriel στο "Sledgehammer" (1986)...



Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer [1986]
You could have a steam train
If youd just lay down your tracks
You could have an aeroplane flying
If you bring your blue sky back

All you do is call me
Ill be anything you need

You could have a big dipper
Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car, bumping
This amusement never ends

I want to be your sledgehammer
Why dont you call my name
Oh let me be your sledgehammer
This will be my testimony
Show me round your fruitcage
cos I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruitcage
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I want to be your sledgehammer
Why dont you call my name
Youd better call the sledgehammer
Put your mind at rest
Im going to be-the sledgehammer
This can be my testimony
Im your sledgehammer
Let there be no doubt about it

Sledge sledge sledgehammer

Ive kicked the habit
Shed my skin
This is the new stuff
I go dancing in, we go dancing in
Oh wont you show for me
And I will show for you
Show for me, I will show for you
Yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you
Youve been coming through
Going to build that power
Build, build up that power, hey

Going to feel that power, build in you
Come on, come on, help me do
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
Ive been feeding the rhythm
Ive been feeding the rhythm
Its what were doing, doing
All day and night

Kwan - Tainted love [2006]


Kwan και "Tainted love" από το album "Little Notes" που κυκλοφόρησε το 2006.



Kwan - Tainted love [2006]
As attainable as where the ring of smoke
Round your finger be swirling all on it's own.
There's no point in trying, in calling you back
but taking control of the following act
I've been sensing a tension in your delay
hesitation in drawing the velvet drop
There's no way of unravelling the plot
without taking the slide in the rabbit hole with me

Are you ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Are you sure you want to play

Should you give me a moment and let me think
I will come up with something you can't resist
demonstrating myself in a certain way
with the lighting so subtle and perfectly dim
A suggestion of mine which you will not take
is to pack your belongings and steal away
for the play is in progress and what's to come
may not be your thought of marvelous fun
at all

Are you ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Are you sure you want to play

Take this moment, don't reason it through
Leave all caution, fall for my need
Let me see

Are you ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Sure you want to play
this tainted love
Ready to play the game
Ready to lose it all
Are you sure you want to play

Black Sabbath - Paranoid [1970]


Πάρα πολλά χρόνια πίσω...
1970 και "Paranoid" από τους Black Sabbath.



Black Sabbath - Paranoid [1970]
Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind.
People think i'm insane because I am frowning all the time.

All day long I think of thinks but nothing seems to satisfy.
Think I'll loose my mind if i don't find something to pacify.

Can you help me?
Ocupy my brain.
Oh, yea.

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find.
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind.

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry.
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal.

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state.
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's to late.

Mazzy Star - Fade Into You [1993]


Οι Mazzy Star στο "Fade Into You" από το album "So Tonight That I Might See"(1993).



Mazzy Star - Fade Into You [1993]
I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think its strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then it's smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside [1999]


"Otherside" από τους Red Hot Chili Peppers, τραγούδι μέσα από το album "Californication" που κυκλοφόρησε το 1999



live


Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside [1999]
How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up; it brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I've got to take it on the otherside

Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I gotta take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin my throat
it's all I ever...

Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts
She wants to know am I still a slut
I've got to take it on the otherside

A scarlet starlet and she's in my bed
A candidate for my soul mate bled
I push the trigger and I pull the thread
I've got to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that It's not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down
And then it's born again

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever had (how long)
I don't,
I don't believe it's fair
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Arcade Fire - Windowsill [2007]


Arcade Fire και "Windowsill" από το "Neon Bible" του 2007.



Arcade Fire - Windowsill [2007]
I Don't wanna hear the noises on TV
I Don't want the salesmen coming after me
I Don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I Don't want it faster, I don't want it free
I Don't wanna show you what they done to me
I Don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I Don't wanna choose black or blue
I Don't wanna see what they done to you
I Don't wanna live in my father's house no more

Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I Don't wanna give 'em my name and address
I Don't wanna see what happens next
I Don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I Don't wanna live with my father's debt
You can't forgive what you can't forget
I Don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I Don't wanna fight in a holy war
I Don't want the salesmen knocking at my door
I don't wanna live in America no more

Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

MTV, what have you done to me?
Save my soul, set me free!
Set me free! What have you done to me?
I can't breathe! I can't see!
World War III, when are you coming for me?
Been kicking up sparks, we set the flames free
The windows are locked now so what'll it be?
A house on fire or a rising sea?

Why is the night so still?
Why did I take the pill?
Because I don't wanna see it at my windowsill

I Don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I Don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I Don't wanna see it at my windowsill

1984 και "Smalltown Boy" από τους Bronski Beat από το "The Age Of Consent"...



...και εδώ η acoustic που κυκλοφόρησε το 1994.


Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy [1984]
You leave in the morning

With everything you own

In a little black case

Alone on a platform

The wind and the rain

On a sad and lonely face


Mother will never understand

WHy you had to leave

For the love that you need

Will never be found at home

And the answer you seek

Will never be found at home


Pushed around and kicked around

Always a lonely boy

You were the one

That they'd talk about around town

As they put you down

And as hard as they would try

They'd hurt to make you cry

But you'd never cry to them

Just to your soul

No you'd never cry to them

Just to your soul

Οι Tuxedomoon στο "In a manner of speaking" μέσα από το "Holy Wars"(1985)



(video cut)


Tuxedomoon - In a manner of speaking [1985]
In a Manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing
In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that i feel about you
Is beyond words
O give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
O give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything
In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrified
So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.
O give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
O give me the words
Give me the words
Give me the words

Puressence - Don't Know Any Better [2007]
Well I'm coming home again
on a future missing plane
and there's water on the window
a message in the rain

Just when I thought all was lost
nothing could describe it
If you' re fighting for a cause
nobody should hide it

Here's my excuse, here's my excuse
and I don't know any better
who do you lose, who do you lose
when you don't know any better

Well I'm driving home again
try to lose the pain she gain
and the radio explains
someone else just took my place

Here's my excuse, here's my excuse
and I don't know any better
Falling for you, falling for you
cause I don't know any better

You think we are all the same..
You think I'll never change..

Inspiral Carpets - Dragging Me Down [1992]
I would search this world for you
Even though you can't imagine
I wanna take you to China
I wanna kiss you in Rome
I use rocket ships
And mine sweepers
Transistor radio receivers
I wanna hold you
Wanna hold you too tight
Gonna break every bone
Of everybody in sight
When I'm flying so high
(Flying so high)
Like a bird in the sky
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down
Down down down
I hear your talking and whispers
Pale drawn out nails and fingers
I'm seeing shapes behind the curtains
You're looking older
But you can't be certain
You're so tired but you just can't sleep
You're so shallow but you're in too deep
Your hands shaking, body splitting
Bodies mine
I know, I know, 'cause I told you so
When I'm flying so high
(Flying so high)
[ Inspiral Carpets Lyrics are found on www.getlyrics.com ]
Like a plane in the sky
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down
Down down down
You're dragging me down
You're dragging me down
Dra-dra-dragging me down
You're dragging me down
You're dragging me, dragging me, dragging me
You're dragging me down
I never can quite remember
Was it June, July or September
That you sold your soul to me, to me
That you sold your soul to me, to me
When I'm flying so high
(Flying so high)
Like a star in the sky
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down, yeah
But you're dragging me down, yeah
When I'm flying so high
(Flying so high)
Like a star in the sky
But you're dragging me down
But you're dragging me down
But you're dragging me down
Down down down

Dj Shadow - Six Days [2002]


Dj Shadow και "Six Days" απο το "The Private Press" του 2002.



DJ Shadow Remix (feat. Mos Def)


Dj Shadow - Six Days [2002]
At the starting of the week
At summit talks you'll hear them speak
It's only Monday
Negotiations breaking down
See those leaders start to frown
It's sword and gun day

Tomorrow never comes until it's too late

You could be sitting taking lunch
The news will hit you like a punch
It's only Tuesday
You never thought we'd go to war
After all the things we saw
It's April Fools' day

Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
Tomorrow never comes until it's too late

You hear a whistling overhead
Are you alive or are you dead?
It's only Thursday
You feel a shaking on the ground
A billion candles burn around
Is it your birthday?

Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
Make tomorrow come I think it's too late

Gorillaz feat. Roots Manuva - All Alone [2005]


Οι Gorillaz το 2005 κυκλοφορούν το album "Demon Days".
Μέσα υπάρχει το "All Alone" με τον Roots Manuva και την Martina Topley-Bird.



Εδώ σε live εκτέλεση...


Gorillaz feat. Roots Manuva - All Alone [2005]
All Alone...

The beat's got soul...
Deuteronomy...

Snatch a piece of my wonderin'
Distant-far like yonderin'
Skin of my tooth like
seat of my boot like
Fly in my soup like
Where's the waitress?
Can't take this, ready can't face this
These airs and all these graces
It's my mistake, i make it
J-dub to the boom now make it
Bounce-wiggle bounce-wiggle
Shakin' all them pains out
Chemical cutthroats
Bound to blow the brain out
Cut to the brain
This ain't no game
I'll show no shame
I'll birth this blame
I'm twisted cain
I'll twist again
I'll push the blame
As plain as day
Known to what these sayers say
Known to what these do-ers doing
You know who and you know where
We's about to take it there
We's about to make it clear
We happy or we lonesome
The long jump, the beat heart, from start to finish
Ten spoons of spinach
The soul and the spillage
The cup that runneth ovah
Return of the OGAH!

Close your eyes and see
When there ain't no light
All you'll ever be
Come on save the night
'Cause i don't believe
When the morning comes, it doesn't
Seem to say an awful lot to me

"Εσύ εκεί"...
Στίχοι ο Κυριάκος Ντούμος και μουσική ο Λάκης Παπαδόπουλος, από τον Μάνο Ξυδού και τους Πυξ Λαξ.
Ένα από τα τραγούδια του "Υπάρχουν χρυσόψαρα εδώ" (1999).

Υπάρχει στο live album τους "Τέλος"...




Πυξ Λαξ - Εσύ εκεί [1999]
Εσύ εκεί κι εγώ στου πόνου τον παράλληλο βαρύς χειμώνας
και το κλίμα ακατάλληλο
Εσύ εκεί κι εγώ στου κοσμου το υπόγειο να σε γυρεύω
σε μια ψεύτικη υδρόγειο

Εσύ εκεί κι ο έρωτάς σου διαταγή και τελεσίγραφο
Κι εγώ εδώ όλη τη νύχτα αγκαλιά μ' ένα αντίγραφο

Εσύ εκεί εσύ εκεί

Εσύ εκεί κι εγώ στου πόνου τα μεγάφωνα να τραγουδάω
της αγάπης τα παράπονα
Εσύ εκεί κι εγώ σκυμμένος στην κασέτα σου
να με ματώνει η φωνή σου και το ψέμα σου

Εσύ εκεί εσύ εκεί
Εσύ εκεί κι ο έρωτάς σου διαταγή και τελεσίγραφο
Κι εγώ εδώ όλη τη νύχτα αγκαλιά μ' ένα αντίγραφο
Εσύ εκεί εσύ εκεί

Manic Street Preachers - If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next [1998]


Manic Street Preachers και "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next" από το album "This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours" του 1998.



Manic Street Preachers - If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next [1998]
The future teaches you to be alone the present to be afraid and cold
'So if I can shoot rabbits then I can shoot fascists'

Bullets for your brain today but we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next, will be next will be next will be next

Gravity keeps my head down or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today but I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Ramblas but not with real intent

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next, will be next will be next will be next

'And on the streets tonight - an old man plays
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days'

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next, will be next will be next will be next

U2 - With or Without you [1987]


"With or Without you" από τους U2.
Το πρωτοακούσαμε το 1987 όταν και κυκλοφόρησε το album "The Joshua Tree".



live


U2 - With or Without you [1987]
See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side.
I wait for you.
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you.

Through the storm, we reach the shore
You gave it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you.
I can't live with or without you.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

My hands are tied, my body bruised
She´s got me with nothing to win
And nothing left to lose.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you.

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you.

The Faint - I Disappear [2004]


2004 και The Faint στο "I Disappear" απο το album "Wet From Birth".



The Faint - I Disappear [2004]
I disappear,
I lost control,
My body's moving,
all on it's own.
I watch myself,
Walk away,
A foreign spirit,
took my place.

An empty stare,
its eyes are dull,
So my essence, it's riding my pulse.
A Burst of black,
A Breath of smoke.
I disappeared,
I lost control.

I,
I disappear(x3)

I disappear,
I lost control,
My body's moving,
all on it's own.
I watch myself,
Walk away,
A foreign spirit,
took my place.

I,
I disappear(x3)

How could I resist,
It's all I've wan-
ted now I guess I've got it.
Why it happened, I don't know,
Hope this doesn't last forever.

I, disappear(x4)

Rory Gallagher - Moonchild [1976]

Αυτός ο τύπος με έκανε να αγαπήσω την Rock εκεί γύρω στο 1980 που τον πρωτοάκουσα.

Rory Gallagher και "Moonchild" από το "Calling Card" του 1976.



live



Έτσι ακούστηκε το ίδιο τραγούδι στην Ν. Φιλαδέλφεια τον Σεπτέμβρη του 1981.


Rory Gallagher - Moonchild [1976]
You are a moonchild and pretty soon child
I've got a feeling that
I've gonna make you smile forever

If I can
Just give me a sign,
and I show you my grain

You are a blue child forever true child you
Know that I tried to scrape the skies blue forever

If I can
Just give me a sign,
and I show you my grain

Tell me why, you look so sad
Time slips by like trace of sand

Just put your future in my hand
Tell me why you look so sad

You are a moonchild and pretty soon child
I've got a feeling that
I've gonna make you smile forever

The Cure - A Forest [1980]


Καλή εβδομάδα με ένα τραγούδι του 1980.
"A Forest" από τους Cure και από το "Seventeen Seconds"...



Εδώ σε live εκτέλεση όπως το ακούσαμε και το είδαμε το 1985 στο Rock in Athens.



Τέλος η acoustic version έτσι όπως ακούγετε στο Greatest Hits διπλό album τους του 2001


The Cure - A Forest [1980]
Come closer and see
see into the trees
find the girl
while you can
Come closer and see
see into the dark
just follow your eyes
just follow your eyes

I hear her voice
calling my name
the sound is deep
in the dark
I hear her voice
and start to run
into the trees
into the trees

into the trees

Suddenly I stop
but i know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
all alone
The girl was never there
it's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
again and again and again

Τρύπες - Η δικιά σου κοντινή Αμερική [1987]



Τρύπες και η acoustic version από το "Η δικιά σου κοντινή Αμερική" μέσα από το "Κράτα το Σώου Μαϊμού" του 1994.
Το τραγούδι το είχαμε ακούσει για πρώτη φορά το 1987 και υπήρχε μέσα στο "Πάρτυ στο 13ο Όροφο"

acoustic version


live version


Τρύπες - Η δικιά σου κοντινή Αμερική [1987]
Όταν κρυώνω κι αρρωσταίνω ψάχνω εσένα
θα 'θελα να 'μουν ο πιο κακός σου γιος
να σου γκρινιάζω πως εδώ δεν ζει κανένας
να σε αγκαλιάζω κι ύστερα να σου ζητώ

Στο δρόμο να με βγάλεις που ανεβαίνει
για τη δική σου κοντινή Αμερική
με μια πληγή κι ένα περίστροφο στη τσέπη
θέλω να τρέξω κατά κει

Όταν ξυπνάω τρομαγμένος βλέπω εσένα
μια γνώριμη σκιά στον ουρανό
με πλησιάζεις με λόγια ιδρωμένα
με νανουρίζεις μα εγώ κλαίω και σου ζητώ

Στο δρόμο να με βγάλεις που ανεβαίνει
για τη δικιά σου κοντινή Αμερική
με μια πληγή κι ένα περίστροφο στη τσέπη
θέλω να τρέξω κατακεί.
